is for good. -- one is fort hood. we have a similar circumstance at a hospital in virginia. has taken me three or four times to understand it, but within the additions on the food stamp program, where a lot of the dollars look like they are not obligated, it takes awhile for inflation to get back to where it was. perhaps we can get a better explanation than from me on this item, but a lot of the out years spending is mandatory, based on what we did on food stamps. . . >> it is only in the last 10 days here so. >> i appreciate your diligence. if the numbers we had where numbers that came from a staff concentration. we read by upon it. -- rely upon it. the whole premise of the stimulus was to get the economy moving again. some of these are good programs. they are ones we should be paying for as part of the regular function of government and not spending money under the guise of providing an economic stimulus. if the only question we look at -- that we try to answer is it this is a program that has some merit, then we will never pay for anything. there is an endless list of things, for example th
